I just celebrated a birthday and received a wonderful birthday present, an Amazon Echo: we’ve been talking about getting one for the baby’s room.
We both love music and love our audiobooks and have recently come to appreciate the ability to play waves or rain sounds to help get to sleep, and having something like an Echo would allow us to queue up whatever we wanted without putting the baby down, which is *ideal* (as well as just a delightful image). So now we have a source for sound as well as a comfortable chair to sit in, with the crib and the growing baby’s library in immediate arms reach… our strategy seems sound.
So I expect the next day or two will include getting the new audio device set up and hanging the Guess How Much I Love You prints. Good stuff to end the year/start the new year.
